Hot flashes..the must have essential oils to carry in your handbag.

Essential Oils for Menopause.
HOT FLASHES are probably the most well-known symptom of menopause and affect around 80% of women.

Generally described as a sudden sensation of heat that can spread throughout the body but is particularly felt in the upper body and face, hot flashes can be accompanied by profuse sweating, reddening of the skin, and, sometimes, nausea, or just an experience of feeling unwell.

Hot flashes can last for a few minutes up to fifteen minutes and can be very uncomfortable and embarrassing, often appearing out of nowhere and for no apparent reason!

It is thought that hot flashes are most likely caused by the effect of declining oestrogen levels on the hypothalamus in the brain. This triggers the brain to sense that the body is too hot, so it initiates measures to cool down the body, such as sweating and redness of the skin.

As hot flashes often happen spontaneously and with no particular pattern, it can be helpful to use Essential Oils that can be easily carried around in a bag or purse.

Essential Oils that may be helpful when hot flashes occur include:

• Clary Sage
• Eucalyptus
• Peppermint
• Spearmint
• Tension Blend
• Monthly Blend For Women

PEPPERMINT is a very effective Essential Oil to use when hot flashes occur, and can be used in a multitude of ways. Our company produces a PEPPERMINT oil with a high menthol content, for superior quality and effect. Not only can it have a cooling effect on the body, it can also help to alleviate occasional stomach upset, and promotes healthy respiratory function when taken internally (it has the added benefit of naturally repelling bugs, too!).

PEPPERMINT used topically on the back of the neck and chest is an effective way to help during hot flashes.

• 30 drops Clary Sage
• 30 drops PEPPERMINT

Add to a 4-oz. spray bottle with 2 tbsp. of witch hazel and top off with distilled water. Witch hazel is a natural emulsifier that helps to disperse Essential Oils in water. Apply to back of neck, throat, and chest area when feelings of heat arise. Repeat application in five minutes if needed.
